Welcome adversant! Lucerne
as a base is fine for this itinerary. You can find travel times from and to Lucerne in the timetable
. That will provide insight in traveling times for each day trip. It may also help you decide what to do on day December 11: Pilatus is a lot closer to Lucerne than Rigi and Pilatus. As for skiing: if you haven't skied before, you can't simply start doing so. All you can achieve in one or two days is take a few beginner's classes. There will be quite some options in Zermatt.
If you want to keep your plans flexible and prefer unlimited traveling, an 8 day Swiss Saver Pass
would be the best choice. Whether it's the most economical can only be told if you have an exact list of your plans and make calculations
based on them. Note that acces to the Rigi is for free with a Swiss Saver Pass. Alternatively, you can consider a Swiss Saver Flexi Pass
, picking free travel days for the longest and most expensive transfers, and buying discounted tickets on the remaining days.
I hope this helps you decide!
